Tax hike in Lee County

November 11, 2003

Lee County-- Your property tax in Lee County is going up.

The School Board raised the millage rate by just under a half mill. That means if you have a 100,000 dollar home, you'll pay $11.92 more in property tax a year. The increase will bring in about $400,000 dollars in revenue--money needed to offset the state budget cuts.

School Board Member Greg Duke says, "We had to take action to adjust our numbers to meet that particular budget cut."

Governor Perdue warned state agencies to prepare for a 2.5% cut across the board and another five percent next fiscal year.
